I live near two significantly important Kentucky Civil War sites. Camp Dick Robinson was the first Union recruiting and training center south of the Mason-Dixon and is what propelled Kentucky into the war even though neutrality was planned. Many "orphaned" recruits came from East Tennessee to join the Union when their home state seceded. Many souls were lost there due to an outbreak of measels.
Not far north of there near the Kentucky River is Camp Nelson National Cemetery and heritage center which was once the recruiting and training center for African-Americans that wished to gain their freedom by joing the Union. Over 10,000 black recruits were mustered in there bringing with them their families. The Emancipation Proclamation was only for the men. Women and children were not freed but still considered "run-aways". Several of those died outside the camp due to cold and starvation. That Poclamation also had no effect in Kentucky and Delaware which A. Lincoln did not want to further antagonize those 2 border states.
It is not only wrong but very, very sad what black people had to go through and actually not that long ago. It is also very sad that the majority of the black people living today don't know or care what their ancestors had to endure to get them the opportunities they have today. The oldest black folks proably do know a lot of it and they do care but the younger generations could care less.

Little toker is doing fine, he had a visit with the vet yesterday for shots and general check up. His house breaking is coming along well but he attempts to chew everything he get his teeth around. He is healthy and happy and chased his first bird this morning.

Still waiting for the site to be shut down, or did I miss it? Hopefully if it happened, it lasted more than 4 minutes, like the last time. What a Dork!

Man, ya'll getting heavy here lately, lighten up team, here I'll help a little,, I had a pet chicken once, but she seen a KFC commercial and kicked the bucket. I fed her some cement by accident and she laid a side walk. My chicken was so graceful, pultry in motion really. It was a smart chiken so I sent her to school, but she got eggspelled. I married the chicken but the relationship spoiled, I would of filed for divorce, but I needed the eggs.
Geez, the things I do for this group.

Oh gosh, I got hooked on solitaire a few years ago! I have to stay away from that game, too addictive! I almost had to go into treatment over it! On computer it is even worse! lol

Weather Report: 40 'F and raining. Weatherman calling for up to 1 inch of snow here in Western KY. Above us into IL and MO expecting some heavy snow! Looks like it's already coming down good up there.

I need to go email sympathy to a friend that had to put her dog down today after 16 years, so 20 minutes should do the trick.

Hello, all of you members of the "Dead Bird Society"! I had a wonderful Christmas holiday and trust you all did as well. Lot's to catch up on in here, but again there are so many holes. Oddly though, this time the conversation kept rolling around whatever the heck was going on.

Oh well...

I got to spend the bulk of my Christmas holiday up north. We ate, laughed, reminisced, looked at old photos, smiled till our cheeks hurt, and truly had a blessed time together. It was so nice being with family. Hope everyone else out there felt the love of Christams too! But as always, it's good to be home. No matter where you go or what you do, home is where the heart is.....

Oh, my dear Lord. That can be as painful as loosing a human family member. I'm so extremely sorry for their loss even though I don't know them, AW. Been there, done that. Too many times, and it never gets any easier. It's a sad and sorrowful thing to have to do....
